8/10 Very good

Beautiful views. Hotel with lots of character. Comfortable and clean with spacious rooms. Very rural and remote which suited us. Bar is traditional And cosy with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast included And whilst there was plenty of fruit, cereals and cakes available the cooked menu was extremely sparse....very Small portions... Which disappointed us

Hotel with the Best Views In Ireland
Everything about the hotel was wonderful. The staff were all so lovely. The food was great and were provided generous portion sizes. The rooms provide everything that you need and you cannot better the view. Highly recommend and would certainly return.

Love this lakeside gem!
This is a truly special place nestled right on a lake with an abundance of hiking trails. The hotel also has a restaurant and the food is incredible. This would be a three-star property and the price reflects that it doesn't have the frills and updates of higher-end accommodations. I would recommend this charming hotel to anyone looking for a peaceful respite away from the hustle and bustle of cities.
